Get ready for the next awe-inspiring comet with a pair of sleek, portable Celestron Cometron 7x50 binoculars. The large 50 mm objective lenses and multi-coated optics offer amazing light-gathering capabilities that bring celestial objects into bright, sharp focus, making them ideal for comet watching, stargazing, and viewing craters on the Moon. Cometron 7x50's wide field of view lets you explore expansive swaths of the sky to quickly pinpoint exactly the object you want to see, then keeps it in your sights without constant movement. Cometron 7x50's rubberized aluminum housing is durable, lightweight, and tripod adaptable for extended comfort during long stargazing sessions. The binoculars come with a wide neck strap and a carrying case for security, portability, and grab-and-go convenience
NEVER look directly at the sun with the naked eye or with a telescope/binocular/spotting sope (unless you are using the proper solar filter). Permanent and irreversible eye damage may result.

Compared to my Celestron 15x70 binoculars (which work well but I wanted something more compact) the images are clearly inferior (and not just by a bit by a lot). I was hoping for similar quality images in a smaller more portable binocular but if that's what you're looking for then my opinion is look elsewhere.
Although only 7 times zoom, you'll find that the shakiness of your hands is exaggerated, so prepare to lean back and perch up your arms for some quality viewing.

I had a lovely view of Venus in Pleiades in April, and you can see Jupiter’s moons. Our moon also looks beautiful.
It really depends what you are looking for. If you want to zoom in and see details such as banding on planets, a telescope would be a better purchase. If you just want to see some lovely views of celestial objects, or find your way round the constellations, they are really perfect. Even in light polluted London, there are so many stars to see that you miss with the naked eye.
They are really well made and sturdy, and I’m super happy. Just bought a tripod to go with them for added adventures!
Before buying, it is necessary to adjust ones expectations: it will not show you Saturn's rings. Stars and planets are visible as dots of light. It is meant to see more stars - not more detail. Planets being closer, do show some fuzziness and trails - this set is not meant to have perfect optics of the more expensive binoculars. One must be prepared to make an effort to collimate to adjust both eyes properly. It has good enough resolution to watch terrestrial features, but for something like bird-watching a higher magnification might be useful. The Celestron upClose series might help.
To conclude, it is a great start to learn how to navigate the night sky. Once you can identify most of the major objects and orient yourself without needing an app, then might be the time to go for something more expensive.
